Strategic Academic Plan
Since 1947 Casady School has been preparing students with the skills and knowledge that serve as the foundation for successful lives--wherever their lives lead them in this rapidly changing world. Students receive the very best education, which is built upon developing excellence, confidence, and integrity in each student. This passion for individualized, student-driven, durable, and engaging education has remained steadfast over the past 70-plus years. But the way students learn has evolved, and their school must meet them where they are today.
That mindset inspired Casady School to embark on an evolutionary journey. A journey that ultimately creates more "peak" moments for students. A journey that promotes balance, seeks purpose, and encourages joy.
Casady's Strategic Academic Plan focused on five priorities: student wellness, student engagement, durable learning, community involvement, and skills and knowledge. The development of this plan included extensive research, and was done in consultation with Independent School Management (ISM), a nationally renowned organization known for its expertise in schedule research and design. All that Casady does reflects these fives priorities, leads to "peak" learning opportunities, and stays true to Casady's mission.
As an independent, Episcopal, co-educational, college-preparatory school, Casady's driving impetus is to foster a learner-centric environment that draws out the strengths, interests, and passions of each student in an effort to help students grow toward mastery of skills and knowledge. To read with comprehension, to communicate intelligently and convincingly, to understand the scientific nature of our world, to think creatively, analytically, and divergently, to empathize and connect with others who view and experience the world differently, and to value artistic expression - these are the bright nexus of basic competencies we aspire for our students to master through our curriculum and academic programming.
